Career and training progression routes

The availability of career paths in an industry allows organisations to benefit from workers’ skills and experience gained at lower occupational levels when they advance to higher levels, and improves retention of people in companies and the industry.

Talented young people are attracted into the industry, and then are motivated to perform well, by the prospect of advancement. CITB has, thus, encouraged the development of stronger career paths in the construction industry as part of its efforts to professionalise the industry’s approach to workforce recruitment and development and to improve the industry’s status and image.

To inform these efforts, CITB has undertaken research studies of career progression in the industry, first in 2012 and now, as reported here, in 2016.
